Writing Facebook Notes

  1. 1. Writing “Notes” on
  2. 2. This is a shot of our facebook page:
  3. 3. These are notes in the facebook feed:
  4. 4. Elements of a note preview in the facebook feed: Note: illustrations make notes stand out - see the “ Getting Illustrations from Flickr ” guide for details 1. Profile Icon: 2. Profile Name: 4. Thumbnail illustration 3. Note Title 6. First few lines of note text 5. Time posted
  5. 5. Here is a full, expanded note: Facebook automatically makes thumbnail images – so start with the image size you want in your post: Your content can be as long as you need it to be, and you can include both text and links.
  6. 6. Step 1: Log in to Facebook <ul><li>First, go to and login: </li></ul><ul><li>Remember if you’re posting notes for a page it will not show a link to your own profile, only a link to the page. You will need to be a page administrator, though, so talk to Emily if you need </li></ul>
  7. 7. Step 2: Open Notes The most direct way to write a new note is to use the “Notes” tab on your profile or page (for page administrators): From here you can “Write a New Note” or “Edit Note.” Don’t have this tab? There’s another way to find your notes (next)
  8. 8. Don’t have a Notes Tab? <ul><li>Personal Notes </li></ul><ul><li>Page Notes </li></ul><ul><li>Just click on the “Notes” tool </li></ul><ul><li>(only for personal notes) </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook doesn’t have “page” logins, instead it has a tool called “Ads and Pages” </li></ul><ul><li>All apps for pages, including Notes, are in this menu. </li></ul>You can also get to the Notes tool from the “applications menu” on the left sidebar of your home page: Don’t see these tools? Click on “More” to reveal the rest of your applications.
  9. 9. Page Notes, Step 2 (for Page Admin): If you’ve never added notes to your page before, look under “Edit Page”, then under “Applications”
  10. 10. Step 3: Editing & Publishing Notes <ul><li>Basic content sections: </li></ul><ul><li>Title </li></ul><ul><li>Text </li></ul><ul><li>Illustration </li></ul><ul><li>(Note: photo layout options will appear after you add a file) </li></ul><ul><li>If you need help adding links or formatting your note, check this link for help or talk to Emily </li></ul><ul><li>Choose a final option </li></ul><ul><li>and you’re all set! </li></ul>
